Lesson 3-4

Lesson 3-4: Polygons

Definition:

A closed figure formed by a finite number of coplanar segments so that each segment intersects exactly two others, but only at their endpoints.

These figures arenot polygons

These figures are polygons

Lesson 3-4: Polygons

Convex:

No line containing a side of the polygon contains a point in its interior

Concave:

A polygon for which there is a line containing a side of the polygon and a point in the interior of the polygon.

Lesson 3-4: Polygons

Regular:

A convex polygon in which all interior angles have the same measure and all sides are the same length

Irregular:

Two sides (or two interior angles) are not congruent.

Lesson 3-4: Polygons

Diagonals of a Polygon:

A segment connecting nonconsecutive vertices of a polygon

For a convex polygon with n sides:

The sum of the interior angles is

The measure of one interior angle is

The sum of the exterior angles is

The measure of one exterior angle is

Lesson 3-4: Polygons

• Sum of the measures of the interior angles of a 11-gon is

• (n – 2)180°  (11 – 2)180 °  1620

• The measure of an exterior angle of a regular octagon is

• The number of sides of regular polygon with exterior angle 72 ° is

• The measure of an interior angle of a regular polygon with 30 sides
